You guys have to be tired of me talking about wind and solar projects... I can't help it I am excited! I have been researching, planning, saving and working towards getting some sort of renewable energy for the house... I have been installed solar panels at my house over the past week or so and today I had my first live power run... With 6 panels I was making 48 amps at 24 volts.. I have 8 installed now with 2 more to go, I just can't wait until I get them all installed and working.... zz1.jpg

So long term how much will it cut your electric bill, just wondering?

So you have 6 panels with 48 amps, with 4 more to get up and running. You should be able to almost completely offset your load from the utility. Can you calculate savings in real time with your panel?
